So, I went to my doctor yesterday, got a 'cunt scrap' *snickers*, and she told me I had a mild yeast infection - or rather, that's what it looked like, we'll know for sure when my results come back from the lab. So she prescribed Monistat 3, and told me to tell her if I notice a difference. She also told me that it could be why I hurt during intercourse at work (I love my doctor, she's wonderful .. even if she does make me have cunt scrapes every three months :-).
Now I have a couple of questions (har. Damn yeast infection treatments).
Firstly, and less importantly, it says in the instructions that the thingy I put inside my cunt will lessen the effectiveness of condoms. Is that true? Should I aviod intercourse at work?
And, secondly, today when I woke up (I put the first thingy 'up there' last night, and used the cream-stuff), I was bleeding. I have no idea what this means. I'm on the first week of my pills, so my period is nowhere near from starting, and I've never had break through bleeding. Plus it doesn't look like my period. It looks like regular blood. I missed a pill on Thursday (I was so boggled by having a yeast infection - never had one before), and took it this morning when I woke up. Could it be because of that? I don't know, but I'm still bleeding a little bit, and not too pleased by this turn of events. Any thoughts?
(I'm paranoid. Right now I'm trying not to imagine my horrible death, being convinced for no particular reason that my pap and blood tests will come back from the lab and I'll be diagnosed with some weird sickness and die next week. Ooooh, paranoia ;P)
